A day before her 30th birthday, Shraddha Kapoor flew off to Europe on a vacation with her friends, Ankita Choksey, Fazaa Shroff Garg, Rohan Khatau, Viraj Kapur and Karan Raj Kohli, after a pre-birthday bash with her family and close friends at her Juhu residence. The first stop was Berlin.

The group strolled the streets of the German capital, going over the Oberbaum Bridge which crosses the river Spree and wandering into Konzerthaus Berlin, a concert hall in the Gendarmenmarkt Square in the central Mitte district, and taking in the exhibits at the Pergamon Museum in Museum Island and Checkpoint Charlie — the bestknown Berlin Wall crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War.

“Shraddha is having a great time and in constant touch with her family. She’s been doing some shopping too, picking up a jacket for dad, Shakti Kapoor, and other gifts for the whole family,” informs a source.

From Berlin, which they explored on electric scooters, they’ve now moved to the Czech capital, Prague, and enjoyed breakfast there at the Mistral CafĂ©, a hip eatery with Modern European dishes in the menu. She will be returning to the Bay this weekend.

Meanwhile, Shraddha’s dog, Shyloh, has been moping around, sitting outside her room, waiting for her to return. Earlier when she was shooting for the emotionally intense Haseena Parkar biopic, after an exhausting day on the sets, she would spend time with Shyloh. “It always rejuvenates her. She spends at least 15-20 minutes everyday after returning home with her puppy,” adds the source.
